Pcos is not really an ovary issue but a hormonal imbalance so the name is misleading- insulin resistance and diabetes are linked to pcos as well. I would query endometriosis as well as pain is more associated with that rather than pcos. As to be referred to an endocrinologist as both can be discussed at the same time. It is not uncommon to have pcos and endo - write every thing you can think of to ask as well. Cysts are only a symptom and not the cause so cysts can come and go.

No not necessarily, like pcos everyone has different issues, it's quite common with pcos as well
